Verse 1

Pounding rhythm of loneliness, you have the baton
And you're twirling it, without noticing
You've enraptured the strongest people, but not me
Because I'm cut from a different rock


Father to brother, mother to father, you are the wound without a weapon
Years of concussion into raw silence, widening ever outward
Father to brother, mother to father, I am the tune without a lure
Automatic preconceptions, impossible to tell - for sure.

Verse 2

In absentia your presence, you are not the words
But the music, of the back-beat to my world
Pain of defiance, one last flurry of kisses
Before I submerge in the foam, at the line of the surf
